Peiping Machine Brewing Description

Peiping is part brewery, part sharer of others’ brews, all temple to the gods of beer. The airy, high-ceilinged former factory has been packed ever since it opened. All because Beijingers love their beer. 

Peiping makes its own brews – a sweet wheat beer is our favorite – but perhaps more importantly, it serves craft varieties from breweries around the country. There’s Slow Boat, of course, and soon Jing-A, but also brands from outside Beijing – ones you may recognize from beer festivals but that you’ve never seen on a menu before. 

We enjoy brews from Chengdu, Wuhan and Nanjing – we suggest you get a flight for maximum sampling. As such, Peiping is a machine of Chinese beer education (beerducation?) so cue the news stories on China’s blossoming craft beer scene. (“More Than Just Tsingtao” – we can imagine the headline now.) 

There’s also a great toilet here, which is no small feat for Fangjia Hutong. It’s so great that we recently referred to Peiping Machine, lovingly, as Peepeeing Machine. We mean this in the most respectful of ways.
